What People Say About Dr. Vivek Patil, MD

After two surgeries with Dr. Patil I am confortable with his level of expertise and judgement after he presented the viable options for treatment, and both surgeries were successful. In spite of his schedule, if I had a minor issue or had any questions, he promptly returned my call and advised me of the situation and arranged to have me come into the office for follow-up. I intended to recommend Dr. Patil to my family and friends. Respectfully NFB

Dr. Patil is a very good doctor. He helped my husband so much. My husband was having so much issues, and Dr. Patil solved all his issues. We even didn't have to wait so much to get an early appointment. My husband and I really appreciate it. Thank you Dr. Patil. God bless you.

Terrible Exp. After my hemorrhoid surgery, I did not receive any follow up call. The surgery was equal to almost dying. It was extremely painful, excruciating. He assured me the pain would last one to 2 weeks. But after 2 months and half, I am still suffering from intolerable pain, and it hasn't healed. He didn’t prescribe any cream to ease the pain, even after 4 weeks of pain and begging for help. He forgets to call the pharmacy for your prescription.

Nice guy, horrible surgeon. Had a surgery with him two years ago that I didn't need, and he never advised me of the serious risks of that procedure. Now here I am, needing more surgery for an open wound that he created on me that never healed and turned in to an abscess and fistula. And I was a completely healthy 31 year old when I started with him. Run away fast - he lacks experience.
